Inktense trials

I bought a set of Inktense blocks last week and have been playing with them on and off since then.  The blocks are watersoluble ink and can be used as is or with a wet paintbrush or sponge. I tried colour-washing the leaves using what was left on my brush from colouring the stone wall and then tried to do the same on fabric. The process definitely has great possibilities. White isn’t included in the tin unfortunately but on another doodling piece I successfully used a white oil pastel crayon instead.

Inktense washesI was playing around with some fancy machine stitches on the border but they don’t show up well on this image. Really must decide what to do with all these bits and pieces I’m stitching these days…


I like it when people write to me
